The 2017 Care and Share Annual Catholic Appeal begins next weekend, and the theme
is You are Numbered Among the Saints and of the Family of God. Once a year,
each of us is asked to make a commitment to support the work of our diocese. These are
the programs and ministries that provide services that a single parish could not provide
on its own. This effort is a means by which we can all work together to care for the
Church in our diocese by sharing the gifts God has granted us. Our parish goal is 100%
participation. Please watch your mail for a packet from Bishop Warfel this week and bring your Care and Share envelope with you
to Mass next weekend, Commitment Weekend, or mail to the parish office. If you prefer, you can go online at to make your donation.

Each week we will have a different Catholic topic with a presenter. Questions and discussions are encouraged. We are each responsi-

plan on joining us, spread the word and bring a friend!
We will be meeting at the Tin Cup at 7 PM on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month. Our next session will be March 14th, with Fr.
